520    "The Great Surge tells the remarkable story of this 
       unprecedented economic, social, and political 
       transformation. It shows how the end of the Cold War, the 
       development of new technologies, globalization, courageous
       local leadership, and in some cases, good fortune, have 
       combined to dramatically improve the fate of hundreds of 
       millions of people in poor countries around the world. 
       Most importantly, The Great Surge reveals how we can fight
       the changing tides of climate change, resource demand, 
       economic and political mismanagement, and demographic 
       pressures to accelerate the political, economic, and 
       social development that has been helping the poorest of 
       the poor around the world, "--Amazon.com.
